Will Smith Joins Instagram, Gets a #Tbt Welcome from Justin Timberlake
Welcome to Instagram, Will Smith!

The 49-year-old actor has finally made an Instagram account, announcing the big news on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday.

In honor of the momentous occasion, DeGeneres took it upon herself to teach Smith everything he needed to know about the 'gram, like how to snap pictures of food, with babies and perfect the popular duck face. The pièce de résistance, of course, was the talk show host's tutorial on #ThrowbackThursday, during which she made Smith dress up as The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

"It's gonna be like a Throwback Thursday," the host told Smith. Check out the blast from the past below! (About four minutes in).

Will Smith has got the Christmas spirit!

Et caught up with the 49-year-old actor at the premiere of his new Netflix movie, Bright, at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood, California, on Wednesday, where he revealed why the holidays are such a special time for the Smith clan.

On my radar: Jazzy Jeff’s cultural highlights

The DJ and producer on Jay-z’s new album, the Philadelphia 76ers and the great taste of blue crab

Born in West Philadelphia, DJ Jazzy Jeff has been spinning records since he was 10. The skills he developed in his family’s basement soon became the basis for hip-hop duo DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince. As well as winning Dmc Championship and American Music awards, he was the first hip-hop artist (together with Will Smith) to win the first best rap performance Grammy for Parents Just Don’t Understand (1988). The group’s second Grammy was earned for Summertime, peaking at No 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. Since then, his work has featured in Boyz n the Hood (1991), Strange Days (1995) and Jersey Girl (2004). Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff will make their first UK live performance at Livewire festival on 27 August.

‘Men in Black’ Turns 20! How Will Smith’s Theme Song Marked His Return to Rap

‘Men in Black’ Turns 20! How Will Smith’s Theme Song Marked His Return to Rap
It’s been 20 years since Will Smith made Ray-Ban sunglasses and black suits look good in Men in Black, the sci-fi action film about secret agents who track and supervise extraterrestrial lifeforms on Earth.

“July 4th weekend. That’s my weekend,” Smith told Et in 1997 on the set of the music video for the film’s theme song, “Men in Black.” The film’s release was still a couple of months away, but Smith had the fullest confidence that the comic book adaptation would be a success. After all, the actor did lead the ensemble fight against aliens in Independence Day, which made over $817 million worldwide the year before.

While Smith’s proclamation was supported by a $589 million worldwide box office haul, becoming the second-highest grossing film of the year, perhaps there was more pressure on the song. Sure, it was a good promotional tool for the film, but it was also Smith’s first solo record

I’m Definitely Starting to Like Will Smith Again after DJ Jazzy Jeff News

I’m telling you right now that Will Smith reads this site. I cannot prove it but I just know he does. Not even a week ago just a short time after we were still ranting and raving about the Fresh Prince of Bel Air faux reunion, I wrote in an article that I was never really a fan of “serious action hero Will Smith.” I still think his best work comes in two forms: When he’s 100% humorous or 100% serious. Smith is a great actor but I’ve never been a fan of his straight up action film work (unless
